Hi, whats up?
Wo xi wang yi qie dou hou! ^^

I know I didn't blog about Anime so much compared to Beauty stuff and tips.
So, today I made a time for that, and it's about Kuroko No Basuke! *yatta!* ^^
Since I'm a die-hard fan of Kuroko (OMG he's so cute! XD), you'll see that most of the important words are highlighted with the Kuroko's blue-like hair color ! ^^

Kuroko's Basketball, known as Kuroko no Basuke (黒子のバスケ), officially translated as The Basketball which Kuroko Plays) in Japan, is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Tadatoshi Fujimaki. It began serialization in Weekly Shonen Jump in December 2008. Kuroko no Basuke tells the story of a high school basketball team trying to make it to the national tournament. An anime adaptation by Production I.G began airing on April 7, 2012, and it ceased airing on September 22, 2012.


The basketball team of Teiko Middle School rose to distinction by demolishing all competition. The regulars of the team became known as the "Generation of Miracles". After graduating from middle school, these five stars went to different high schools with top basketball teams. However, a fact few know is that there was another player in the "Generation of Miracles": a phantom sixth man. This mysterious player is now a freshman at Seirin High, a new school with a powerful, if little-known, team. Now, Kuroko Tetsuya, the sixth member of the "Generation of Miracles", and Kagami Taiga, a naturally talented player who spent most of middle school in the US, are aiming to bring Seirin to the top of Japan, taking on Kuroko's former teammates one by one.


Seirin High

Seirin High's basketball team was founded only the year before the manga; despite this setbacks and only including freshmen, the team made it all the way to the final league in that year's inter-high school tournament. This year, the team's notable newcomers include Tetsuya Kuroko, the main character of the manga, as well as Taiga Kagami.

He is the sixth man and the "phantom" member of the "Generation of Miracles" (キセキの世代 Kiseki no Sedai) (Teiko Middle School's basketball team), Kuroko is Seirin's secret weapon. Although he was an essential member of his middle school basketball team, unlike his former teammates, Kuroko is unknown. This is largely because he is so small, frail, and easy to miss. Kuroko possesses the skill of misdirection which allows him to steal the ball and shift the trajectories of passes to suit his team without being noticed by the opponents. His near-invisibility makes him highly susceptible to on-court injuries however, and is not effective indefinitely. If he is left in play too long, opponents grow used to his misdirection tactics; as such, he must be placed on the bench at varying points in any match to prevent this.
Kuroko considers himself a "Shadow", whose goal is to help his "Light" achieve greatness. He also has a tendency to speak and act completely deadpan, and a running gag involves his teammates, thinking they are alone, talking to themselves only for Kuroko to answer them, apparently having been in the area long before they arrived.

A naturally gifted basketball player, Kagami easily makes his way into Seirin's starting line-up as a freshman power forward. When he first returned to Japan, he was disappointed by its relatively low level of basketball skill compared to that in the United States. However, since starting high school, Kagami has been spurred on by his desire to compete with the "Generation of Miracles". While he is a powerful all-around player, Kagami's unique skill lies in his ability to jump to great heights. This skill facilitates not only his most common move, the dunk, but also allows him to defend well against taller players. The drawback to this capability is that his body is still underdeveloped thus he often injures himself. As Kuroko has chosen Kagami as his new "Light", Kagami is also bolstered by Kuroko's techniques.
